Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

An opportunity has arisen within the Nuclear Medicine Department for a Trainee/Apprentice Nuclear Medicine Technologist to join the multidisciplinary team at an exciting time. The service operates out of both Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals, providing diagnostic nuclear medicine imaging, osteoporosis screening and a comprehensive range of nuclear medicine therapies. The department currently has 6 gamma cameras, including 3 SPECT/CTs, of which two have approved replacement in late 2018, as well as 2 DEXA scanners at Guy’s, with an additional scanner being installed at St. Thomas’ in July 2018 for paediatric patients.

The post holder will undertake training in all aspects of Nuclear Medicine Technology as part of the national Practitioner Training Program (PTP) via a three year apprenticeship.  

You will be employed on a part time basis with the Trust whilst studying for a BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Nuclear Medicine) at the University of Cumbria - please see the University website for further details

You will be paid on a pro rata basis, approximately 11.25 hours in the first year although this will increase in the second and third years according to the length of the clinical placements.

As a trainee, you will work as part of a multidisciplinary team that includes Technologists, Radiographers, Scientists, Medics and Nurses.  You will work closely with patients in a healthcare setting, providing a high level of care and contributing to the delivery of diagnostic and therapeutic Nuclear Medicine procedures.  You will need to be flexible, highly motivated and adaptable with a passion for healthcare.  It is essential that you will be able to balance the demands of vocational training in a clinical setting with high level academic study.
